Rockets Interested in Signing Josh Smith

I would advise team to proceed with caution with Josh Smith. Similar to JR Smith, the talent is there, but you have to think about will he disrupt your chemistry and offensive flow if you bring him in. Is the risk worth the reward? Houston has an interest in signing Josh Smith, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) December 22, 2014

How To: Fix The Knicks

Charity is a helluva drug. I might be hopped up on something for wanting to discuss this train wreck a.k.a. the New York Knicks.

First let’s talk about why the Knicks have struggled. They’ve lost 16 games by nine points...

Phil Jackson and Charles Barkley have debate over Knicks and Triangle offense

I think this is so silly and I’m actually taking Charles Barkley’s side on this. Phil Jackson wasn’t thrilled when Barkley was saying unflattering things about the Knicks and the Triangle Offense while calling the Bulls/Knicks game on Thursday night. Charles Barkley said that the system didn’t matter and it had always been about the players (Triangle was fruitful with Michael...

Must-See Video: J.R. Smith Plays Golf With Special Olympics Champion

It’s no question that J.R. Smith is one of the NBA’s best golfers. In fact, he’s so good that Michael Jordan won’t even play a match with him. Seriously. That should come as no surprise, though, seeing as Smith plays six rounds a week in the offseason. One of those rounds, however, was not about winning or losing, or breaking par, or beating his opponent. It was about building...

Phil Jackson, Charles Barkley exchange words over Knicks criticism

Rather than providing analysis from TNT Studios, Charles Barkley called Thursday night's Knicks-Bulls game from the United Center. And he criticized the New York team numerous times throughout the broadcast. That didn't go over well with Knicks team president Phil Jackson, who took to Twitter to rip Barkley during the first half of the game...

New York Knicks: The Missing Element

Carmelo Anthony What has happened to the New York Knicks? Starting the season with five wins and twenty-one losses the Knicks have their worst start in franchise history.  This is absolutely shocking, because the L.A. Lakers have more wins! Yes the Lakers have Kobe Bryant but the rest of that roster is abysmal (minus Swaggy P also known as Nick Young). So what is the cause of the...

John Wall stars in Taken 3/ESPN trailer

We’re a couple of weeks away from the release of Taken 3 in theaters, and ESPN is promoting the film a little bit by combining it with a promotion for their NBA Christmas schedule on ABC. In this trailer, Liam Neeson calls John Wall to tell him that the Knicks will beat the Wizards on Christmas. Yep. That’s totally plausible. I’d assume this trailer was filmed before the...

The Knicks show why not rebuilding is even more painful

It’s easy to understand why an NBA team wouldn’t want to rebuild. Attendance—and all the revenue that comes with it—takes a plummet. You get made fun of in the press. It’s possible that free agents would want to avoid your losing team—or, maybe, that you’d have to pay a lot more than a winning team for the services of the same player. And even if you have the smartest...

Everybody on the Knicks hates each other

The New York Knicks stink. At 4-19, only the Pistons and Sixers have a worse record than them in the entire NBA. The Phil Jackson era doesn’t look much different from the pre-Jackson era. And of course, everyone on the team hates each other and coach Derek Fisher. This ESPN New York piece by Chris Broussard highlights the discord, which includes an on the court conflict between...
